The story of the missionary work of the Moravians (a.k.a. the Bohemian Brethren) among the Labrador Eskimos (Inuktitut) is well known. There publications in the Inuktitut language are scarce and now much sought. The work present here is one of Christian doctrine and, despite its trilingual titlepage, is entirely in Inuktitut. Questions are posted, answers are given, and supporting passages from the Bible are supplied. AYER, INDIAN LINGUISTICS (ESKIMO) 73. BANKS, p.73 EVANS 293. PILLING, ESKIMO, p.48.
